Outdoor Services

Our Approach

The Outdoor Services Group (OSG) identifies and acts upon a wide range of needs, supporting campus patrons who contact them with concerns. OSG are often the first staff to respond to a concern, and their principal goal is to be responsive to the needs of the campus community. OSG uses best management practices to create a safe, healthy, and sustainable environment for the campus community. OSG strives to minimize the impacts of maintenance activities on the quality of campus work life for students, employees, and residents.

FM Diversity

The Facilities Management Diversity Team was founded in fall 2018 with the goal of working on inclusion and diversity efforts to help our department meet the diversity plan set forth by the Division of University Operations (DUO).

Heavy Equipment

Heavy Equipment & General Services

The General Services Crew and Heavy Equipment Crew work closely together to accomplish a wide variety of campus services. These services include street maintenance, concrete work, hauling and trucking, excavation, snow removal, and special events.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

The Facilities Management Grounds Department follows an Integrated Pest Management strategy. According to the EPA, "In technical terms, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is the coordinated use of pest and environmental information with available pest control methods to prevent unacceptable levels of pest damage by the most economical means and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment." The IPM strategy employs five common sense approaches to manage pests effectively.

Facilities Focus

Facilities Focus is the quarterly newsletter of CSU Facilities Management (FM). Facilities Focus aims to communicate to employees that their work and their sections are valuable to FM and CSU, that what we do is recognized and holds meaning and impact. The department newsletter covers topics that range from the FM employee recognition SPARK program to Facilities and campus-wide events, benefits for CSU employees, and community news.
